Where Are They Going And Where Are They Coming From?
Wahoo are some of the most amazing predators in all of the world’s oceans. The shear speed in which they strike coupled with razor sharp teeth and beautiful coloration results in a superb game fish that ranks high on every anglers’ hit list. Utilizing catch statistics and tagging data, scientists have been able to precisely document the migration routes of sailfish, kingfish, tarpon and dolphin. Unfortunately, little is known about the almighty wahoo.
When it comes to getting connected and staying connected, it should be fairly obvious that it’s all about being in the right place at the right time.

Although artificial offerings have their time and place, live bait is hard to beat. While some choose to purchase frisky forage, if you spend the extra time and effort catching your own live bait you'll gain a tremendous amount of knowledge in regards to migration routes and seasonal patterns of both forage species and game fish.
